Postby CMCrai » Thu Jul 09, 2009 10:41 am

Oswalt's pretty good second half if you can get him from someone.

Was just going to say this same thing. Although he's not ww material he's definately someone I'd target. Burnette is another guy who usually steps up in the 2nd half. Hudson also may be someone to look at, he's back soon off the DL and could be a solid stash if you have room in your lineup.

I think C. Young is going to come back and have a strong final two months.

Wells, Happ, Zimmermann, and even De La Rosa.

I think Wells and Happ are two guys that will be solid down the stretch. Pick them up if they are available.

Kevin Correia's been having a pretty solid season and he's coming off a sizzling June, where he went 4-2 and beat the Dodgers @ L.A. and the Rangers @ Arlington. He could develop into a nice no. 3 pitcher for fantasy purposes. He's owned in only 13% of all Yahoo leagues.

Manny Parra looked great today and after this upcoming 3 game series vs the Dodgers they play bad teams for a month+ so he might be worth a look if your in a deeper league.
